SVG Europe FutureSport features Sandbox+: World’s First Live IP TV Studio

Just two weeks to SVG Europe FutureSport 2015 at The Kia Oval in London December 2 and it is time to register your place now if you have not done so. Live IP innovation is a major talking in sports broadcast production this year, and FutureSport will deliver a unique insight into the Belgian Sandbox+ live IP project led by VRT and the European Broadcasting Union.

Sandbox+, VRT’s LiveIP Project, was one of the key technology demonstations of IBC2015. A landmark achievement in interoperability, it uses SMPTE 2022/6, AES67 and PTP to transport broadcast feeds via an SDN, and highlights sharing resources, remote production and automation. For FutureSport, the key participants will discuss learning and achievement to date – and the many challenges on the road ahead.

The Sandbox+ panel session on December 2 will be moderated by SVG Europe Contributor George Jarrett, and confirmed panellists include Wouter De Cuyper, VRT, Technology Architect; Jan Eveleens, Axon, CEO; Marcel Koutstaal, Grass Valley, Senior Vice President and General Manager; Felix Krückels, Lawo, Director of Business Development; Felix Poulin, EBU, Senior Project Manager, Networked Media Production; and Johan Vounckx, EVS, Senior Vice President Innovation & Technology.

SVG Europe’s final summit of 2015 provides a welcome opportunity to both look back at some of the highlights of the departing year and ahead to what technologies and events are likely to define what promises to be a packed 2016 for the sports production community. From the rapidly rising IP revolution to the working arrival of 4K UHD with the promise of HDR+ to come, FutureSport sets out to capture the excitement and opportunity of an industry that is always innovating and always moving forwards.
